Craft Roundup: Costume and Dress-up DIY Projects for Kids

Let's make believe! What kind of costume box do you have it your house? For some it's a chest packed with old ballet costumes, sports uniforms and even (gasp!) prom outfits. For others, it's more modern accessories neatly folded in the closet. No matter what your setup is, it's safe to assume the contents are greatly appreciated by your little pretenders. If you have a house full of daydreamers and make-believers, this week's roundup is for you.

Frozen Cape

Frozen has been the talk of the Internet thanks to a memorable Oscars performance by Idina Menzel singing "Let it Go." If you know a Frozen fan, this cape idea by Made by Marzipan is a must-make DIY project.

DIY Tie Tac for Kids

We've got two fun projects from Handmade Charlotte to share this week. When make-believe – or perhaps school functions – call for more of a black tie-like approach to fashion, make your small gentleman his very own tie tac. Created from craft clay, this is an accessory he can help you make.

DIY Robot Party Hats

Calling Mr. Roboto! These hats are great for a robot birthday party, but work every day when your children feel like taking a more "mechanical" approach to dress-up with this second pick by Handmade Charlotte.

DIY Milk Carton Houses

When your child's make-believe stories require a few props, consider making a village from empty milk cartons with tips from Momtastic. No matter the story, this colorful, whimsical backdrop is sure to make for a happy ending.
